And in aggregate nine verticals of game board are sufficient for logic games and intellectual puzzles by means of three playing card packs.

According to card plays on a chessboard it is possible to invent and design games for casinos, namely gamble playing processes which are equivalent to poker or roulette. Including it is possible to invent computer variants of playing cards on a chessboard for game servers of online poker and casino in the Internet.

If playing cards on squares of game board form combinations of suits and numerical values or otherwise to tell poker hands then players win. And if poker hands or combinations of suits and numerical values are not formed then online casino or game server wins.
Or players win when colors and numerical values of playing cards form combinations of poker hands on verticals of a game board. And casino or dealer at  online gambling table wins if hands of poker are formed on horizontal rows.
Or rules and instructions of card games in online casinos or poker rooms can be others.
